Holy moly - I cannot believe that I am already at this point. 24 weeks. That means that if this little guy made the poor decision to show up now he would at least have a fighting chance. Not that I feel like his arrival is imminent or anything. No signs of anything going on down there. Hopefully it stays that way for quite some time - I am not ready for him to be here yet.
And on to this week.
How far along? 24w0d and the size of a cantaloupe. Around 12 inches long and weighing over one pound. He possibly has some hair on top of his head at this point.
Weight loss/gain: +19.5 lbs. Trying to rein in the weight gain since I would really like to keep under the 35 lb mark.
Maternity clothes: Some. I'm wearing maternity jeans and a t-shirt today since I didn't feel like looking like a stuffed sausage. I was able to wear a non-maternity dress the other day and it fit fine.
Symptoms: My colon still sucks (and coconut water tastes like ass) and I was in pain after running Wednesday night. I'll be really bummed if I have to cut my mileage down this early this time since I was able to make it to 36 weeks with Andrew.
Sex (of baby): It's a BOY!!!
Name: Still no progress and we haven't even talked about it in weeks. I should probably be feeling a greater sense of urgency with this, but I really don't.
Sleep: Not too bad, except Wednesday night. I've been sleeping pretty soundly and luckily Andrew is getting back to his normal sleep schedule.
Best moment this week? It was kind of a 'meh' week so nothing really happened.
Movement: Yes. Apparently my favorite sleep position is about to be a thing of the past because 2.0 doesn't seem to like it. He was kicking/poking up a storm when I was trying to fall asleep last night.
Food cravings: Still produce. Loving strawberries, blueberries and grapefruit right now.
Belly button in or out? In
What I miss? A decent long run.
What I'm looking forward to? Next Tuesday and getting to hear his heartbeat again.
Milestones: Viability day!!
What I'm nervous about: How much daycare is going to cost. C'mon powerball jackpot!!
And me this morning. Couldn't get a good pic in my normal spot so you'll have to settle for the nice bathroom shot:
